Is homeschooling high school hard?  

Yes, in some ways, it is. Just because it involves more planning and record keeping, and such. 

Are you thinking about homeschooling all the way through high school, or are already doing that?   

Sharing today, my favorite resources for high school ----that really helped us to not only get high school done, but also find the fun and joy in it all.   

But with the right resources and tips, it doesn't have to be that hard. And we are so glad that we went all the way.  It gave our teen time to figure out who she was, and to discover her own gifts.

 Preparing my heart for Graduation and then all the fun of watching her take on college the next year...Folks, it only gets better, seeing how your child has benefitted from homeschooling, in their lives.

 Here's how we celebrated, with lots of ideas for your teen... and links and resources to find events in your state.


Homeschooling prepares our kids so well for college.  

They go in knowing how to research, organize their studies and with a motivation that many other college students lack. This is based  on my own teen's experiences, and her observations on campus.  

I was nervous as she entered college, then she came back to me with honors grades.  Why did I worry so?  We really don't need to!  And colleges are becoming so homeschool friendly, too. 

My always homeschooled daughter was accepted to all of the colleges on her list, with scholarship offers.  And it wasn't hard to do. We were able to keep own homeschooling style along the way.
